Hi,I've only joined this page a few days ago but I wonder if anyone can help me.<br /> I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism 14 years ago.I have been tweaking my thyroxine for more or less all that time,but 25mcg up or down that's all.<br /> I'd recently been having some problems weeing too much,no matter how much I drunk.The doctors found blood in it so they did an ultrasound and ct scan.They found kidneys cysts that's all,and it still didn't account for the problems.Kidney cysts don't cause you grief unless they're very big. <br />I was feeling very rubbish ,my eyes had swollen,and my heart was just pounding for no reason.<br />I googled for my swollen eyes,because I was getting very self consious about it,it looked like I hadn't slept for a month,and I came across a page saying your thyroid levels can do that.I got them checked ( I was due anyway) and it turns out they've gone over.My doctor dropped my thyroxine dose by 50mcg which he's never done before so it must have been a fair bit.<br /> I've been on the new dose for a month now,and I just feel like I'm deteriorating.Im losing time off work,which illness doesn't usually stop me.My heart is pounding 90 percent of the time.I just feel so weak.For the last few months my periods have been two days of hardly anything,and this month I've seen nothing at all.My weight has skydived and I'm not a big girl anyway,I can't afford to lose the weight.<br /> I don't know what to do,I've never felt like this,my body just feels like giving up,but I know it takes three months for the thyroxine to take proper affect.<br /> Does this sound normal to anyone? Or should I go back to the doctors.Just want my kids to have a nice Xmas <br />
